Welcome to the Southwark Book Award 2018


Here you will have the opportunity to find out more about our six shortlisted authors, review their books and see what other readers think too. And in February, you will be able to vote for your favourite book from the shortlist.

So, get reading!

We are busy contacting our authors and inviting them to our Awards ceremony in March. We will let you know soon which authors you will actually be able to meet in person!



Jessica’s Ghost by Andrew Norriss

“With its moving story, and intricate characters, it’s almost impossible to put down! I would love to ask the author where the idea came to them, and how it came to life.”

“a very powerful, beautifully written book. Definitely one I would recommend, and definitely a 10/10 book.”

“I think this book deserves a 10 because it shows us how to talk to others when we have problems -this helps more than keeping it to yourself.”

“Jessica’s Ghost is a beautifully written story with a deep meaning to it. It was a real page turner and an easy read.”

“an amazing book by the brilliant Andrew Norriss!”
